In 2008, he began to teach dance in Lynchburg, Virginia. This mostly consisted of Salsa along with some ballroom. However, after about a year he noticed a lack of diversity within the dance scene. He decided to start a weekly swing dance in 2009 which quickly gained popularity and became what is known today as Lynchburg Lindy. Dan also began the Lynchburg Lindy Swing dance team which would perform in a variety of venues throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Though his dance life began in Virginia, he was born and raised in Southern California and he is happy to be back sharing his love of dance with everyone.
